Production

Older vines here, averaging 70 years in age from around the village of La Chatre-sur-la-Loir, the soils are rich in silex. Barrel fermented then aged 50% in foudre and 50% in smaller format oak. Barrels vary in age from 2 to 6 years old. 4g/l RS.

Tasting notes

With a gentle 3 to 4g/l in the finished wine, a generous texture and some serious ageing potential this wine is extremely versatile. Lots of ripe apple notes with a lightly smoky backdrop.

Food match

The ripe apple note here would be perfect with a rich crab dish. A generous pork chop with a creamy mustard sauce would also make the heart sing.
